The Fall, ‘Reformation Post T.L.C.’ (Narnack)

When bands make albums on the road, the momentum often infuses the results with a special kind of energy and spontaneity. Or not. A pickup band came to the aid of Mark E. Smith and his keyboardist/wife, Eleni Poulou, for the Fall’s 26th studio album, record in Los Angeles after the other members bailed four gigs into their summer ’06 U.S. tour. There are no real highlights among these soggy minimalist jams, except the revealing cover of Merle Haggard’s highway-weary “White Line Fever.”
